The Balm The Manizer Trio | Review


The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Cindy-Lou Manizer Betty-Lou Manizer review

Highlighters have become such a huge thing in the beauty world, and it's just one of those products where you'll own five of the same colour but still go crazy over a new release! One of the most popular highlighters is probably Mary-Lou Manizer from The Balm which I previously owned and loved! I've also been longing for Betty-Lou for ages so thought this would be the perfect palette to pick up as I'll have all three of the Manizer sisters!

This cute little palette contains the three Manizer sisters. I'm sure you all already know, there is Mary-Lou Manizer (a gold/champagne), Cindy-Lou Manizer (a cool-toned pink shade) and Betty-Lou Manizer (a warm bronze).
These shades are all really versatile and can be used as eyeshadow, blush, bronzer and, of course, highlighter!

L-R: Betty-Lou, Cindy-Lou and Mary-Lou

All three shades are very smooth and they all provide the most beautiful glow to my face without containing actual glitter particles. I'd say that Cindy-Lou is the more toned down shade and isn't as shimmery as the other two.. However, Mary-Lou and Betty-Lou are really strong highlighters and you really only need to apply a little! They're just packed full of pigment!
These powders are super finely milled and blend beautifully too, which is great because these are so pigmented and you can end up accidentally applying much more than needed!

The Manizer Sisters are one of my favourite highlighter formulas and they just stay put all day, whether they're used as a highlighter or an eyeshadow! The Balm have done an awesome job with these!

I think this palette was limited edition, but it's still available here so grab it while you can!
I think it's the perfect palette to pick up if you haven't tried any of these before.
